Russ Swift and MINI combat boredom – Click above to watch video after the jump

The Mini Cooper is a fun little car that we've often praised for its go-kart-like handling. Put one in the capable hands of Russ Swift and it becomes a whole lot more than that. Swift and Mini teamed up for a video to declare that the Cooper is the arch enemy of boredom. For those who are not aware of Mr. Swift's driving skill, he is the man who holds the record for tightest parallel park, fastest J-Turn and fastest donuts. Saying that Russ Swift can control a car is an understatement.

In this video clip, Swift shows off his parallel parking skills, puts a Mini up on two wheels and pulls off other examples of automotive shenanigans. This video is only one minute long, so you have no excuse for not clicking past the jump and give it a look.

      That is child's play compared to the epicness that can be accompished by bringing together 8 mid-80s Saab 9000 Turbos and a 900 cabrio. Best car stunt team ever.

      Oh great - another GT5 fake physics video. That's so fake how the MINI drove on two wheels.

        Man, if Mini was actually serious about producing a sports car like it was back in the day I would be aaaall over it. Plus, it would be cool to see a gymkhana vid for it. Haha

      Here's about 30 sec of an older TV spot for Audi, an A4 parallel parking for people who like to drive. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=P71m3LFmLO0

      Didn't look fake to me. Still don't like the Mini but the commercial was cool.
